MONROE, CT — A 31-year-old Cheshire man broke up with his girlfriend, argued with her, then argued with her 66-year-old father before allegedly punching him in the face, according to police.
The incident took place at the victim’s Richards Drive home, just before 10:30 p.m. on Saturday.

The credit card company removed the fraudulent charges and there was no financial loss, police said.
The victim was advised to contact the Social Security Administration, the three major credit bureaus, banks he has accounts with and Spectrum.

Stolen vehicle recovered, possible drugs
